I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Nova Scotia Health Authority, Canada. I have obtained PhD in Health Economics from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) is the health system partner of my PhD research. My PhD thesis has examined the fairness of Medicare to deliver healthcare services in an era of encouraging private provision and financing of healthcare in Australia. My primary areas of research interest are equity in health and healthcare, health economics, development economics, and applied microeconometrics.
